Hi. I have a 2003 VW Golf and the Check Engine light will not reset with a OBD2 reader. Is there another way of resetting? I've tried removing the battery terminals and it's still there. Thx in advance.

You need to fix whatever codes are triggering your OBC. Resetting light isn't an instant fix. You have an issue or multiples that need to be addressed.

WHAT DOES IN02 CODE MEAN ?


Probably just dealer getting their hands in your pockets for an inspection that is set to a particular mileage amount (like 150,000 miles) ? :)

To know for sure the code get a code scanner. For about the price of an inspection or code read (though some garages will do for free) get you own code reader. :)

Resetting the computer on the ford ka


I'm not sure what year or model your ford is, it says ford ka...You could try removing both battery terminals for like 20 minutes, this should reset the computer, reconnect the POS terminal first, then the NEG. If this is for resetting the check engine light (effectively turning it off), if there is an ongoing issue with the car, the light will come back on after a few cycles of turning the car on and off. If you car is 95 or older, the battery thing should work, if its a 96 or newer, then you probably have an OBD2 port on the lowerside of the dashboard in the interior of the car, OBD2 is "on board diagnostics" and you can plug in a code reader to the OBD2 port and pull the code from the cars computer and see what exactly is wrong with the car. Hope this helps, good luck!

2003 VW golf o2 sensor?


Yes, it could be something else, other than the converter, such as a faulty o2 sensor. Take your VW to Autozone or Advance auto, and ask them to a do a scan, to see what they come up with ( think it's free).

Reset check engine light after repairs. Which fuse? 99 New Beetle


goto a sears automotive center,walmart,pepboys or some place like that, they sell OBD 2 code readers for the car, you connect it up to the computer and it will tell you what the code is that is setting the light off on the dash, if it is what you fixed, then you click on the the button to reset the light and you are done... the OBD2 readers can be anywhere from $20 to $40 or so dollars from those places. just get a cheap one cause that will save you a lot of money. but atleast then if the light ever comes on again you can connect the reader up read the code and fix the problem that is causing the check engine light to come on...hope this helps and saves you money
